This is what discipleship looks like

A woman in a small Arkansas community was a single mom with a frail baby.  Her neighbor would stop by every few days and keep the child so she could shop.  After some weeks her neighbor shared more than time; she shared her faith, and the woman did what Matthew the tax collector did.  She followed Christ.

The friends of the young mother objected.  "Do you know what those people teach?" they contested.

"Here is what I know," she told them.  "They held my baby."
